Carmanah Launched Revolutionary Solar Lighting Technology at LIGHTFAIR® 2010

Carmanah launched leading-edge adaptive lighting technology in the form of patent pending advanced occupancy sensing capabilities and introducrd the company’s highest output self-contained light to-date, the EverGEN 1720.

The new advanced occupancy sensing capabilities will provide functionality that no other solar LED light on the market currently offers. The advanced occupancy sensing capability allows a network of EverGEN 1710 or 1720 solar LED lights to provide synchronized low-high activation when one of the lights within the network senses motion. Utilizing mesh networking and occupancy sensors, the network of lights communicates wirelessly, providing illumination that is responsive to motion in areas such as parking lots, pathways, secure facilities and other areas where lighting performs an integral role in maintaining safety and security.

Advanced occupancy sensing can be configured for either full or set distance activation. Full activation provides synchronized activation of all the lights within the system. Set distance activation provides for activation of lights within a set distance of the detected motion, effectively providing a bubble of illumination that follows motion throughout the site. 

In addition to the launch of advanced occupancy sensing, Carmanah is introducing its newest EverGEN solar LED light, the EverGEN 1720. Representing the company’s highest output self-contained solar LED light to-date, the EverGEN 1720 leverages the slim form factor of the EverGEN 1710 while providing nearly twice the typical lumen output. In ideal solar conditions with tailored operating profiles, light output of up to 10,000 lumens is achievable. In more typical conditions, output of 5,000 lumens is common. Ideal for parking lot, residential roadway, sign, perimeter and other site lighting applications, the 1720 expands the applications for the compact, aesthetic 1700 series solar LED lights.

The 1700 series of EverGEN lights have also been carefully designed for installation in 30 minutes or less, saving customers time and money.

“The Carmanah EverGEN naturally eliminates the need to trench or install conduit during lighting installation,” explains Ted Lattimore, Carmanah CEO. “With the EverGEN 1700 series, installation time and cost are further reduced through the ability to stage the entire system on the ground and hoist it into place on the pole as one complete unit.”
